Lament for Holt's

I am sure many old Blue Funnelers have noticed the boob in current Sea Breezes wher they had shown a Lampart & Holt houseflag above the Lament For Holt's poem!

Whatever happened to Lamport & Holts. Being a Harrison man we always used to joke about the going on in those ships and the ships reputation for being rat infested. Heard they were acquired by Blue Star?

I was in the Ronsard, and she was Ok, good food, plenty of overtime, and I never saw a rat.

I never sailed in them. Just hearsay. I was following on from the previous posts on this thread and comparing two companies sharing same family name and yet at different ends of the spectrum. I always looked upon BF as being the top end and L&H being at the bottom.

I think it was Oeangoer had experience of the two companies and posted an enlightening thread some time back. I am sure others will have a different view.
